Every few years, there seems to be an ingredient or product that experts love to talk about for its health benefits. Goji berries. Açaí. Coconut water. And now, CBD oils and products.
With all its popularity, there are a lot of questions surrounding CBD, especially its effects and effectiveness. We’re here to help clear up some of the mysteries and explain the benefits behind this much-talked about oil.
What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol and is the second highest active ingredient in cannabis, after the more widely known tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBD is taken directly from the plant, but does not contain any properties that give a “high” or altered state to users, unlike THC. Additionally, research from the World Health Organization (WHO) indicates that users of CBD need not be concerned about addiction or abuse connected to the oil.
What are the benefits?
While CBD oil and products are a relatively recent addition to the market, there are a wide range of studies being conducted to determine its various mental and physical benefits. You’ve likely heard of its shown potential effects on anxiety, depression, and muscle pain (like arthritis). There are also several ongoing studies into its effects on epilepsy and other neurological conditions.
We are excited to announce that we will soon be offering a CBD Tincture made with MCT Oil, Hemp Oil and CBD Oil. Tinctures are one of the easiest and quickest ways to experience the effects of CBD Oil due to its concentrated nature. Used by placing a few drops under the tongue, this product can help ease mental and physical strain. The amount and frequency administered will be determined by the reason for using the tincture, severity, and your size and medical history. We recommend consulting with your medical provider to determine the best route for you.
